Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALifeAnd finally my evergreen #MSWL right now: mermaids. Evil mermaids. Magical realism mermaids. 13th Year Mermaids.
And Ren Faire contemporary.
And Spice Girls friendship break-up MG or YA.
Hannah Fergesen @HannahFergesenDear YA Publishing: there is a podcast called Teenager Therapy made BY teens about BEING teens. If we want our books to appeal to teens, then what is better than checking out a show allll about how they feel, from their own minds?
(#MSWL a YA about a group of friends making something cool like this)
#MSWL: Adult Fiction: family sagas, complex juicy historical (think The Crimson Petal & the White, Queen of the Night), female friendship stories, Millennial fiction (think Sally Rooney or Casey McQuiston)
Navah Wolfe 🇳🇴🇦🇺🇸🇲🇪🇸🇬🇷🇺🇦 @navahwSometimes I remember all over again that the new @keiinoband single is dropping tomorrow and get unreasonably (fine okay completely reasonably) excited all over again.
The thing is, @keiinoband isn’t just my breakout Eurovision delight, they’re also the found family musical group of my #mswl heart.
They make great joyful music, but I also really love their friendship, the way they always make sure all 3 of them get to talk in interviews, etc.
sappho panic 💖💜💙 @leneeh4unpopular opinion but slow burn friendships are just as valid as slow burn romance. like, gimme the reluctant characters who are like "i don't need anyone" but ends up with a best friend they never asked for but would die for in a heartbeat. that becomes the grumpy aunt/uncle
Teagan Dawson @TeaganLikesPink@NaomisLitPix I didn't tag it either, so hopefully won't clog up the search.
Hope you find these stories though. I enjoy reading them. :)
Thank you! Me too. I want to see those friendships that just take 100% of you. May or may not end well, but while you're in it, it's all you care about. #MSWL lol
Naomi Davis is reading queries @NaomisLitPixPlease please please send me contemporary YA stories with lesbian and nonbinary main characters! Explosive, powerful relationships, lots of sweet moments in both romances AND friendships. Show me how two teens cling to each other like the other person is their reason for breath.
I forgot to say #MSWL so:
Tia Rose Mele @TiatheTigerI would love a contemporary YA with an unapologetically bi protagonist #mswl
A book that captures what it’s like to be in a fandom for a band - the friends you meet, camping out for shows, road trips to concerts, watching their old YouTube videos, listening to their albums on repeat... basically a book that makes me feel like the @jonasbrothers #mswl ❤️
